Well this is exactly what it says it is a new beginning and today i have booked (and paid the deposit ) to have a gastric bypass in belgium with Dr Dillemanns. I have researched researched researched and then researched some more.
I am afraid, excited, worried, elated to name but a few emotions that are hounding me right now.

I am fed up beating myself up because i cannot get a grip on dieting the textbook way but not satisfied to remain in pain and discomfort and feel like one person but look like another :sigh:!

I had a taste of slimdom with the cambridge diet and i loved it but i missed my golden time there, so time to create another opportunity.

Date booked 26th october 2007 !
Wish me luck Kandy XXXXXX :D

Kandy! Sweetheart how are you!! :)

How exciting that you're taking this big, life-changing step. I wish you ALL the luck in the world - I hope to be with you every step of the way via this forum.

I'm taking another run down the CD path but completely understand how frustrating it can be to be on a perpetual merry-go-round of loss and gain.

How are things generally?

Keep us posted on your new journey :)

Hi Debbie,
I will definitely keep you posted ,feel quite emotional really on the verge of tears then nervous then grinning from ear to ear ! Women huh ! lol

I am not worried about the op just paying back the loan i have taken out to pay for it ! :rolleyes:

I also have to do 3 weeks slimfast before i go to shrink my liver so only 1 week left of food for me and i am upping my exercise too. They said during surgery they collapse a lung for the duration so the fitter i can be the better the recovery and i am determined to do this by the book !

Hope your ok and your doing well with CD i wish you well as we know the results can be awesome.

Take care love Julie XXX

Hiya DQ,
Thanks hunny, I leave 4 weeks today and i am a little nervous but more excited.
I may have you to thank (or blame lol )for this decision i think it was you who recommended the Carnie Wilson books if i remember rightly and they had quite an impact on me . It was like i had written the book myself in parts.

Thanks again and will catch up i have been neglecting my fellow miniminners lately (sorry guys) but t'was all in the name of research.
I wanna get this right so i am now off to browse eurostar prices but i will be back!
Love y'all Julie XXX

Hey babes

Well you know you are going into October a different person than you will be exiting it - kinda exciting thought really!! :)
Just wanted you to know there's a special angel on your shoulder, whispering prayers, encouragement and showering you with love. :hug99: Yes, it was me who recommended the Carnie Wilson books, and I still re-read them every now and then. :cool:

Hi Julie:D

Well what a wonderfully exciting yet terrifying process you are going through......from one who's been there;)

I want to wish you the very best of luck......try to think of this as the start of a wonderful era, something that will completely change your life beyond recognition and I don't just mean your body size.

6 months ago just before my op I was unhappy, unhealthy, single and so very worried about my life and how I was on the way to cutting it short, I was also govourned by food:mad: now I'm nearly 6 stone lighter, happy I'm free from food(its control anyway) healthier than ever, have met the most wonderful guy ever, and I'm finally accepting and learning to love my ever changing figure.

There was something I wanted to ask....you said in an earlier post that your op will last 45mins....are you having open surgery? its just mine was keyhole and lasted 5 hours:eek:

All my love...good luck
